Clinical Detox (former 10-day Detox for Busy People)

Cleanse your body and mind with our nourishing naturopathic detox programme

Create an at-home detox retreat or continue to work as you detox.
Formerly known as IMI’s 10-day detox for busy people, our naturopathic
detox programme is designed to maintain your energy levels and nourish
your system with the right nutrients so that you can continue to work,
play and take care of family as you detox. Or why not take a detox stay-
cation, rest and retreat if you can?

Why detox?

Our body is masterfully designed to self-regulate and heal. It is eliminating
and detoxifying unwanted substances every day but it was not designed to
deal with all the man-made chemicals now present in our homes, food and
environment.

Prolonged exposure to toxic pollutants can place a heavy burden on our
body, compromising its normal function. This total chemical load is
escalated if our DNA lacks the genes that enable our body to produce
detoxification enzymes. Around 40% of us have this defect.

Signs of toxicity

Common signs include skin complaints, digestive problems, headaches, joint and muscle pain, weakened immunity, weight gain and low energy levels. If you are suffering from any – or many – of these symptoms, you should consider our naturopathic detox program to reduce the chemical load in your body.

The classic fasts and juice cleanses that have been so popular in the past do
not work effectively to remove modern-day toxins from our body. Your liver
needs specific nutrients and support to properly detoxify the poisons
released from your body fat, tissues and organs. These nutrients – mostly
amino acids – help your body produce detoxing enzymes like glutathione
and sulfation enzymes.

Many of the fasting programs that only allow you to have juices or water
deplete your body of these important nutrients and enzymes. Unless you
have a low level of pollutants in your cells, these programs may do more
harm than good. We call people who suffer adverse effects from these
programs “spa victims” and we regularly see them in our clinic.

Finding a safe and effective program – one that works at a deeper level – is
important. IMI’s Clinical Detox program is designed and run by experienced
naturopaths who truly understand how the liver and other key organs, as
well as your DNA and metabolism need to be cared for and nourished to
detoxify properly.

We tailor our detox program to meet your specific requirements to provide
targeted support for your system.  Our program has significant advantages
over typical cleansing and fasting programs because it provides the amino
acids and phytonutrients that allow the biochemistry of detoxification to be
upregulated.

The program is also designed to support genuine detoxification at a deeper
level. Essential nutrients, medical food, potent herbal medicines, high
quality supplements for liver and bowel cleansing, and homeopathic
remedies are included to stimulate the detoxification process and safely
remove toxins from the body.

With proper detoxification, you will experience less side effects. Our
naturopaths can also monitor you during your detox and modify it as
necessary to minimize and manage side effects such as fatigue or
headaches.

The most common outcomes of the IMI 10 Day Detox Program are
rejuvenation, weight loss, a clearer mind, improved digestion, and better
responses to healing treatment programs.
